A Year Of Months (July-December)

8. July

July now follows summer's song of June;
with sun ablaze, her days are humid, warm.
Great time to languish in the afternoon,
and later, watch an evening...

Premium Member An English Adaptation of Mephistopheles' Song of the Flea from FAUST
There was a king once reigning
Who carried a great, big flea—
And far from him complaining,
The flea filled the king with glee!
For to him that flea was dearer
Than even his only son,
And to make his preference...

Premium Member In the Bleak Midwinter
In the bleak midwinter,
frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
water like a stone;
snow had fallen, snow on snow,
snow on snow,
in the bleak midwinter,
long ago.

- Christina Rossetti

Winter Fantasy

I love to walk through twilight
In mountain hills
Breathlessly awaiting evening’s first
Flakes of snow in a winter carnival
That rowdy gathering clouds
Threatened to toss upon their upturned faces
And,
When at last, making merry, the storm releases
A snowy...

Premium Member Something in the way Kurt Cobain

Born in Aberdeen Washington 
where he hung out,

“Underneath the bridge, 
the tarp has sprung a leak”

Taught himself to play guitar, 
liked to smoke some weed,

“And the animals I’ve trapped 
have all become my pets”

Started writing...

Premium Member I'd Drink It Down Like Water
Bring out your white, bring out your red,
Bring out the grapevine's daughter,
Enough to fill a waterbed,
We'll drink it down like water,

Pour it cold, pour it cool,
Pour it a little hotter,
Fill the glass - the golden...

Five Water Balloons
A man owned five water balloons,
That he had kept as souvenirs.
He stored each one in its own box,
Where they'd survived for many years.
 
One box was made of platinum,
Studded with Rubies, all around.
Inside, it was...

Hand in hand they meander through  the deserted lane, 
freshly fallen snow crumpling under foot 
Littering the sky, Bright stars,  glittering like coins on a belly dancers belt,
slowly surrender to the coming dawn

One in a Million

Worth more than gold dollars a trillion or a billion –
You are my beacon, a Christian, love driven.

Sabotage
Comrade
Tie rollerskates to pólice
Horses hoofs
Piss on the grim parade
From the roof
Of the dept store
Slip a fortune cookie note
That reads

Or chicken chow mein ´
In the pocket of a
Passing pope
Arm the homeless
With pitchforks

The Plains are Painted in Red
His massive head was adorned with a wooly crown,
and his robes decorated with ermine of brown
What a majestic monarch roaming with regal grace.
He was mighty, but bearing a pusillanimous face.
The king ruled his domain and...

Time Misplaced
Swarthy sky slowly murders daylight,
A night when angels fly in two's,
wishes taste ten days old,
mist stays belly down, a beaten cur,
dripping its fear on dog-rose thorns.

A mausoleum of lumberjack’s debris
lies waiting to issue last rites.
An...

Deadly Rendezvous
Seasoned in street-wise thoughts,
yet young in the expanse of time.
Picture framed against the barren wall,
rabbit-eyed in street lights glare.

Counting the grains, silver wrapped,
Anticipating getting lost in dragons smoke,
(can she conjure a phantom lover
in these tattered...

Apprenticed to Love
Apprenticed to enamoring aviary, Love's cerebral chords to refine
To interpret the alluring tones in each, captivating line
Overhead, a snow white dove in the pure light doth shine
Innocent libido's inhibitions to illumine
On silted ground, turtle doves...
